I've been thinking about this, and have a very non-technical comment.
Please be gentle with me as my technical ability would rattle around in a
peanut shell.

Steve (Sachelle Barber) has a cock-pit adjustable WG control knob CPAWGCK),
which seems to use pressure (or lack thereof) to control the WG.  Apparently
the fab and $$ are pretty small (like $15).  With a chip (like Scott's
Mo's), and a spring, and this CPAWGCK, couldn't the WGFV be controlled
better than just the spring and chip?  Seems like a cheaper fix than the
after-market systems suggested.  Not nearly as sophisticated (i.e. manual
control), but better than nothing.  What say all the smart guys??
